40% of @ScouseGirlMedia followers removed in the space of a football match – and it has happened to other left-wingers
Labour activist @ScouseGirlMedia lost 40% of her Twitter followers – almost 13,000 yesterday ‘during the course of the Liverpool match’. The incident saw thousands forcibly unfollow the prominent left-winger, with most of those ex-followers knowing nothing about it until they were eventually restored.
The loss followed an earlier, smaller loss – also unexplained by Twitter – and at least one other left-wing account suffered similar losses repeatedly:
After protests from supporters, the missing followers were restored = but if RD Hale is correct, this is a worrying and non-accidental development.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also previously had huge numbers of shares of his tweets disappeared by Twitter.
